The name of the house was Crosslands. And I have some very happy memories
of Crosslands. It was, it seemed, so huge to me as a child. And it had a lovely living room with a piano in it and a lovely sort of hall with lots of carpets and chests and antiques (古董) and so on. And there was a mysterious room. It was the drawing room, and we only used it on Sundays, or Christmas Day or Easter Day, and I used to be amazed about this room because it had the best furniture in it but it was covered up with sheets. It was as if all the furniture was wearing clothes and it seemed to me ridiculous that we couldn’t enjoy this beautiful furniture all the week through. And probably my favorite room was the kitchen. It had a lovely red flagstone (石 板) floor, which was always highly polished, and an Aga, you know, one of those big cookers that heats the whole room so it was always warm there. It was a very warm room with baked bread and my grandmother used to make ice cream and we’d eat it in there and... there was a vegetable garden leading from there so I spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden picking peas and eating them—my grandmother used to get really cross with me because I used to pick all the vegetables and the fruit for our meals and then I’d eat half of them, because they tasted s o delicious coming fresh from the garden. I went back to it a few years ago and it was a big mistake. They’ve modernized it inside, they’ve got rid of those lovely old fire-places... have just gone. And they’ve knocked a wall down so the drawing room and the living room have become one big modern plastic kind of room. But I think what upset me most about it was the feeling that the house had shrunk. It had become smaller and my memory of this lovely large warm comfortable house had turned into an old house with modernized rooms inside it. And it taught me a lesson really, that you can’t go back on the past and recapture it. But there’s still a beautiful memory there. 41. In the author’s eyes, the house is the loveliest because ________. A. she has nice memories of the house B. her grandparents once lived there C. it is named Crosslands D. it is huge and modern 42. An Aga (in paragraph 2) is probably the name of ________. A. something made of red flagstones B. an ancient kind of air-conditioner C. something used for preparing food D. a place where vegetables are grown 43. Which of the following is TRUE about the drawing room? A. It was amazing because the beautiful clothes in it. B. It had very good furniture but wasn’t used very often. C. It was the place where the author first learned drawing. D. It had a mysterious atmosphere on Sundays and festivals. 44. The author thought it was a mistake to go back to the house largely because ________. A. the house was in terrible condition B. the house had a new owner now C. she couldn’t move back into it any longer D. it was far from what she had expected B Curitiba, Brazil, has been called the most innovative (创新) city in the world. City officials from around the world visit Curitiba to learn how the city, with relatively limited funds, has been solving urban (都市的) problems. By using imaginative, low-cost solutions and low technology,
Curitiba has created a pleasant urban life that many cities in the more developed nations have yet to achieve. Here is how the city achieved this.
The city has made public transportation attractive, affordable and efficient. Instead of building a subway, which the city could not afford, it established a system of extended, high-speed buses, some carrying as many as 275 passengers, on express routes, connecting the city center with outlying areas. Many people own cars in Curitiba but 85 percent of the commuters(通 勤者) use public transportation. This has reduced traffic jams and air pollution. There are 30 percent fewer cars on city streets than you would expect from the number of cars owned by its residents.
Poor people are encouraged to collect recyclable trash (垃圾) in the areas where they live and turn it in for food. In 1995 the city gave out about 350,000 Easter eggs, 25000 Christmas cakes, and 2 million pounds of food in exchange for trash. About 70 percent of its trash is recycled, one of the highest rates in the world.
Small libraries have been built throughout the city in the shape of a lighthouse. Called Lighthouses of Learning, they provide books (many schools in Brazil have no books), an attractive study room, and in a tower, a strong light and guard to make the area safe.
Curitiba has more health clinics(小诊所) – that are open 24 hours a day – per person than any other city in Brazil.
The Free University for the Environment was built out of recycled old utility poles next to a lake made from an old quarry （采石场）. Short courses on how to make better use of the environment have been designed for contractors, merchants and housewives. Taxi drivers are required to take a course there in order to get their licences (执照). Curitiba is still a Third World city, with at least 10% of its 1.6 million people living in slums of corrugated tin-and-wood shanties. And its innovations were made gradually. But the city now stands as a model for urban planners, and mayors from around the world have visited Curitiba to learn from its experiments. 45. What is special about the city of Curitiba? A. It attracts many tourists to learn from its experiments. B. It solves urban problems without spending too much money. C. It has the cheapest subway system in Brazil for commuters. D. It forces more people to have environmental education. 46. We can learn from the passage that ________. A. most citizens in Curitiba choose buses because they can’t afford a car B. poor people in Curitiba have the technology to turn trash into food C. other cities in Brazil are also building lighthouses to encourage reading D. citizens in Curitiba can go to health clinics at any time they want 47. The underlined phrase in the last paragraph probably means ________. A. urban areas B. poor areas C. rich areas D. downtown areas C The saying that children don’t like reading any more has been proved untrue. A new study finds that 75 percent of kids between five and seventeen say that although they love technology,
they still want to read books. The Kids & Family Reading Report also says that 62 percent of kids prefer reading printed books rather than those on a computer. At the same time, t hose who search an author’s website or use the Internet to find books by a particular author, are more likely to read books for fun every day. The study also once again proves that the time kids spend reading books for fun decreases after the age of eight and continues to drop through the teen years. The report is a follow-up to a 2006 study. But this time the focus is on the role of technology and when kids’ interest in reading starts to drop. “Despite the fact that after the age of eight more children go online daily than read for fun daily, high frequency Internet users are more likely to read books for fun every day,” says Heather Carter, a writer of the report. One in four kids between five and seventeen say they read books for fun every day and more than half of kids say they read books for fun at least two to three times a week. One of the key reasons kids say they don’t read more often is that they have trouble finding books they like —a requirement that parents underestimate (低估). The study also finds that parents have a strong influence on kids’ reading, but only about half of all parents begin reading to their kids before their first birthday. The percent of children who are read to every day drops from 38 percent among five-to eight-year-olds to 23 percent among nine-to 11-year-olds—exactly the same time that kids’ daily reading for fun starts to drop. “Parents’ engagement (参与) in their child’s reading from birth all the way through the teen years can have a great influence (影响) on how often their children read and how much they enjoy reading,” adds Carter. 48. What can we learn from the text? A. Children don’t like reading any more after the age of 8. B. Most children like reading as well as going online. C. All kids like reading e-books instead of printed ones. D. Most children like going online instead of reading. 49. It can be inferred from the passage that ________. A. the 2006 study also deals with kids’ reading B. most parents start reading to kids from their birth C. the Internet stops kids from reading for fun D. parents’ engagement takes kids’ reading time away 50. Which of the following is TRUE according to the text? A. The kids who often go online don’t like reading books. B. Parents should teach their kids reading from an early age. C. Sometimes it is hard for kids to find the books they like. D. When kids get older, parents spend more time with them. 51. What’s the best title of the passage? A. Do Kids Still Like Reading? B. Kids’ Interest in Reading Drops C. New Technology for Kids’ Reading D. Parents’ Influence on Kids’ Reading D In many romantic movies or TV shows one scene always appears. It involves a handsome man standing outside a young woman’s window, singing a love song to her to win her over. However, trying to woo a female with songs is not just something that humans do. A few animals sing love songs as well. Birds and elephants are romantic but the latest animal to serenade a female might
surprise you---it is the humble mouse. You may find it odd to find out that mice sing. We do not hear them because the frequency of their voice is so high. In fact, scientists have known for some time that male mice make special sounds to females, but it has always been assumed that the sounds are produced instinctively (本 能地) and randomly, with little thought going into the process. But new research suggests otherwise. When male mice with different voices were put in a cage together, scientists found that they would gradually change their pitches (音调) to sound like one another. But when a female mouse was put in the cage with two males, one male would change his pitch to match the other. “It was usually the smaller animal changing the pitch to match the larger animal,” professor Erich Jarvis, leader of the study, from Duke University, US, told BBC News. This ability, known as vocal learning, is rare in the natural world. It had been thought to be limited to some birds, such as parrots---as well as whales and dolphins. The latest findings challenge the long-held opinion that mice cannot learn to adapt (调整) their voices. Scientists also found the part of the brain that controls the mice’s singing ability. In the experiment, they damaged the cells in this part of the mice’s brain and found that the animals couldn’t keep their songs in pitch or repeat them any more. This also happened when the mice became deaf. Jarvis said that this finding had changed his understanding of the way mice make sound. “In mice we find that the pathways that are at least adapting these vocalizations (发 声法) are in the forebrain, in places where you actually find them in humans,” he said. “If we’re not wrong, these findings will be a big boost（促进）to scientists studying diseases like autism（自闭症）and anxiety disorders.” 52. What’s the possible meaning of the underlined word “serenade”? A. To sing love songs. B. To challenge others. C. To hug others. D. To fight for love. 53. Which of the following is proven wrong by the latest discovery? A. The frequency of mice’s voice is so high that it’s impossible for humans to hear it. B. When male mice make special sounds to females they can’t control the sounds. C. Birds and elephants are both romantic animals that are good at expressing love. D. Animals like mice are smart even though they often make sounds randomly. 54. What do parrots, whales and dolphins have in common according to the passage? A. They are all animals well-known for their smart appearances. B. They are often chosen to carry out scientific experiments on. C. They all have the ability to learn to adapt their voices. D. Their numbers are quite limited in the natural world. 55. Romantic movies and TV shows are mentioned at the beginning of the passage to ________. A. help readers better understand the article B. stress the importance of the article C. explain why this article is written D. get readers interested in the topic 第Ⅱ卷 第四部分：写作（共四节，满分 30 分) 第一节 阅读填空 （共 10 小题； 每小题 0.5 分，满分 5 分） One morning, a friend of mine was setting the breakfast table beside a huge window, 56__ overlooked the Tred Avon River. Suddenly she leaned forward and cried out, “There is a goose out there!” We looked and saw the figure of a large Canada goose, very still, its wings folded tight to its sides and its feet 57 (freeze) to the ice.
Then in the sky, she saw a line of swans. They flew from the top of the sky downward and at last landed on the ice. My friend was on 58 (she) feet, with one unbelieving hand against her mouth. As the swans surrounded the frozen goose, she 59 (fear) that the poor goose might be pecked (啄) out __60 those great swan bills (喙). Unexpect edly, those bills began 61 (work) on the ice. The long necks were lifted and curved down again and again. They went on for a long time. At last, the goose was 62 (freedom) and standing on the ice. And the swans stood nearby 63 (watch). Then, as if the goose was crying, “I cannot fly”, four of the swans came down around it. Their powerful bills chipped off the ice stuck in its feathers. 64 (slow), the goose spread its wings as far as they would go. Seeing the goose could freely move its wings, the swans flew away into the sky. This is a true story.
